5 out of 5

Do I even need to write a review for this? Book 3 in the The Redhead Series is just a funny, sexy, witty, and fantastic as the first two books were. I expected nothing less from funny girl, Alice Clayton. Between the Redhead series and Wallbanger, you can keep yourself laughing and fanning yourself for days.

And that is the beauty of Alice Clayton. Take this quote from, The Redhead Plays Her Hand: “I took him into my mouth entirely, the words he uttered through clenched teeth were equal parts obscene and nonsensical. Nice to know I hadn’t lost my touch.” Her writing is the perfect blend of sexy and erotic mixed with hilarious characters that are so real, I feel like I’ve known them forever.

And I am not blowing smoke. You should know by now that I don’t deal in bullshit. Alice Clayton is a damn fine writer. And she makes me laugh. I don’t know if this is the last we will see of Jack and Grace. I certainly wouldn’t scoff at more, but if this was it; then kudos Ms. Clayton on a fantastic series. I love how the redhead played her hand!

Synopsisbutton

The third sexy novel in USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton’s playful and erotic Redhead series continues the sizzling romance between actress Grace Sheridan and Hollywood’s hottest leading man Jack Hamilton. 

Grace has landed the lead in a new TV series—but when the director asks her to lose fifteen pounds, she goes public with her weight struggles and suddenly develops a huge fan club who support her right to have curves. But between that and the public’s continuing fascination with her “are they or aren’t they” relationship with Jack, Grace begins to wonder if anyone’s really interested in her because of her upcoming TV series, or if it’s all speculation about the size of her ass and her bedroom partner.

Meanwhile, Jack is voted the Sexiest Man Alive and becomes a little too enamored with the party-hard lifestyle. Grace vows to give him the space he needs to find himself, but then he begins to spiral down from lovable Brit to Hollywood brat. People are talking, but are Jack and Grace? Her career is on the rise, and his continues into the stratosphere, but will she be able to catch him if he falls? Will they ever be able to just be a couple who can hold hands when they walk down the street?

Review: Must Love Otters by Eliza Gordon

I needed this book in the worst way! SO many books with the same tired storylines. SO many books that spend too much time telling and not showing a story. SO many books that blend with other books until you’re not sure if you read it or not or if you even want to. If you’ve been feeling the book doldrums like I have, then you will enjoy Must Love Otters. This book is chock full of smart, witty, and absurdly funny dialogue. The characters were equally great. The story was refreshingly real and sweet.

Eliza Gordon (which is a pen name, but we’re gonna talk like she’s real) is a girl I would like to have a drink with. I laughed so much while reading this book. And nodded my head in agreement with Hollie’s ramblings and thoughts. I devoured this book in an afternoon and now my sides hurt from laughing and my heart has grown in size within my chest over a story about a girl who has been afraid to really live and then she goes on a trip that changes her life. Along the way she meets hot guys, makes ridiculous decisions that land her in more than one unfortunate but hilarious situation and ultimately finds herself and her happily ever after. If Eliza Gordon writes another book, I will be reading it. And if Eliza is even half as awesome as Hollie, I hope I get the chance to buy her that drink some day. Must Love Otters is absolutely worth reading. You cannot read this book and be in a pissy mood. Won’t work. It’s crisp writing with relatable characters and wickedly funny. Plus, there’s a happily ever after. Who could ask for more?

Must Love Otters was so freaking funny!  I was laughing through almost the whole book.  Eliza Gordon did a great job of putting you inside of Hollie’s head, and there were moments that I thought she was channeling me because I know that I have some of the same crazy reactions to the type of messy situations she found herself in.  Loved Concierge Ryan, he’s a really sexy goofball and probably the only male capable of rescuing Hollie from herself and doing it with a straight face…well, most of the time.  Aside from all the laughs, Must Love Otters gave me the warm fuzzies, and had a very satisfying HEA.  This is a must-read for when you are in the mood for something fun to read!

Synopsisbutton

Hollie Porter is the chairwoman of Generation Disillusioned: at twenty-five years old, she’s saddled with a job she hates, a boyfriend who’s all wrong for her, and a vexing inability to say no. She’s already near her breaking point, so when one caller too many kicks the bucket during Hollie’s 911 shift, she cashes in the Sweethearts’ Spa & Stay gift certificate from her dad and heads to Revelation Cove, British Columbia. One caveat: she’s going solo. Any sweethearts will have to be found on site.

Hollie hopes to find her beloved otters in the wilds of the Great White North, but instead she’s providing comic relief for staff and guests alike. Even Concierge Ryan, a former NHL star with bad knees and broken dreams, can’t stop her from stumbling from one (mis)adventure to another. Just when Hollie starts to think that a change of venue doesn’t mean a change in circumstances, the island works its charm and she starts to think she might have found the rejuvenation she so desperately desires. But then an uninvited guest crashes the party, forcing her to step out of the discomfort zone where she dwells and save the day … and maybe even herself in the process.

Review- BEATS by Kendall Grey

BEATSBEATS is Book 2 in the Hard Rock Harlots Series

WARNING: BEATS is specially formulated for horn dogs, porn oglers, smut peddlers, BDSM junkies, M/M and M/M/F addicts, DP dabblers, and lovers of A2M backdoor sexy times. If you don’t fall into these categories, can’t stomach hot man-on-man action, or if you have no idea what the above acronyms mean, please back away from BEATS now. This isn’t the book you’re looking for. Failure to heed this warning could inadvertently throw unauthorized users into a persistent vegetative state, or at the very least, require administration of a defibrillator to the chest and/or groin area. Nobody wants that.

For months, shy drummer Jinx Hardwick has been silently crushing on her tall, dark, and scary bandmate, Toombs Badcock. Drawn to his frightening ink and scars, she yearns to uncover the shadowy secrets lurking behind his silver eyes, but Jinx is too intimidated to even look at him, let alone talk to him. When she stumbles upon Toombs and their manipulative lead guitarist Rax in a compromising position, Jinx realizes her chances of winning Toombs’s heart aren’t just a long shot—they’re nonexistent. To make matters worse, Jinx’s family needs her at home. She’s about to back away from it all—Toombs, the band, her dreams of fame and fortune—when Rax makes her an offer she can’t refuse: a no-holds-barred night alone with Toombs. There’s one small catch. She has to go through Rax to get it.

Mandy’s Review

Rating 5 out of 5

TEAM RAXKendell Grey is one hell of a storyteller.  I loved Strings. It was funny and crass and the story under it all was heartwarming and entertaining. But Beats. Sigh. Beats has taken me away on a honeymoon of love and discovery and I don’t ever want to return. For those of you that thought Strings was too crass (you know who you are) but read it and liked it anyway- you are going to shit yourself over Beats! It is not Strings.  Same kick ass rock stars, but now we get the inner workings of Jinx.  And Jinx is not Letty. I love them both.  But I identified with Jinx on a scary level.  I understood her need to be a chameleon. I too have had many faces and roles forced upon me.  I too have felt like the Real Me was lost. (Most of the time, my Real Me is still lost.)

Beats is Jinx finding her Real Me.  And her Real Me is beautiful. And Toombs is the perfect dark to her light.  Seriously, I cried a few times while reading Beats. Kendell writes in a style unique to her, with vividly sexual prose and deep seated emotions that rock you. Sure, it’s erotica about a bunch of band members and there’s crude humor and funny banter between characters.

But if you pay attention and look with your Real eyes, you’ll see how much each character is feeling. And the feelings are hard core.  Jinx struggling to find her Real Me while basically every part of her life is at risk or struggling. (Sorry, not spoiling plot points.) Toombs. There’s more to him than you think and it’s beautiful too. As for Rax, I know everyone calls him the asshole and yes, he’s done some assholey things.  But I get him- I think. I’ll probably eat my words when Nocturnes releases. Rax has a hole in his soul that is aching to be filled. (How’s that for cliché?) Rax needs a woman that puts Rax above all else. He needs a pure love for himself. I don’t know his past, but there is a wound there that cut deep and took a piece of him. I can’t wait to see if he gets it back. But yeah, I did spend time during Beats wishing I could punch him in the face.

Beats was overall- fucking fabulous! Definitely a top read for me and one for my happy place, too! Jinx and Toombs- well, here’s a quote for you:

““What I’m saying here is sometimes the one you love introduces you to the person inside-the real one who you’re so close to, you don’t even recognize her. Sometimes the one you love knows you better than you know yourself. They bring out the best in us when we least expect it.””

Rating 5 out of 5

Beats rocked it, hands down.  I had trouble putting this down, and I was pissed when I had to go to work and actually, well, do work.   This one delivered what the synopsis offered, but then offered up some surprises that made it better than I expected.

Jinx pulled me in and I was rooting for her from the first page to the last.  While shy, she had some definite lady balls, and she needed them to deal with Rax and Toombs.  I really wanted to kick the hell out of Rax a few times, and Toombs wasn’t far behind on jerk points.  Then I’d find myself totally melting over him in the next scene.  I loved Kendall’s use of the slow reveal on character strengths and flaws.  When the Hero is a jerk through the whole book, but then you learn why he is that way in the last ten pages, I sometimes walk away scratching my head as to how the Heroine could have been in love with him before knowing all of that.

The story itself moved really well.  I can’t stand a book that spends a page describing a couch in the first chapter, but then the climax of the story is over in less than a paragraph.  A great mix here, I could close my eyes and picture the backgrounds and the characters quirky tics, but the pace stayed smooth enough that I didn’t forget what the characters were in the middle of doing from one page to the next.  Speaking of being in the middle, the sex scenes were smokin’ hot, but didn’t overpower the plot.  Personally, I could’ve used a bit more of the smut, but you can’t really blame me, Jinx and Toombs, and even Rax, were super sexy together.  Yummmmm.

Looking forward to Rax’s book, Nocturnes, and I hope it comes out soon, it’s definitely one that will go to the top of my reading list.

JINXDanielle’s Review

Rating 5/5

Beats was fantastic, I was lost in the unpredictable rhythm of Jinx and Toombs. It’s flawlessly written, packed with angst, emotion, and crazy turns. I’m pissed there wasn’t more! The twist this book takes are things I NEVER expected, not with Jinx being the heroine. Their story is very different from the characters in the first book, stilled filled with orgasmic sex, but far more deep and emotional.

Jinx is definitely the chameleon she claims to be. But her multiple different hues become distinct as her character discovers herself. Poor girl catholic school girl fell in love with a man committed to another; a commitment she doesn’t understand, but she finds herself in the process of mastering his devotion. A devotion Toombs isn’t prepared for. Their rollercoaster of fucked up takes you so high you think your going to explode before you reach the drop off. But the end result is well worth the frustrating anxiety you feel along alongside them.

All-in-all, Beats is gooood, damn good. I love how different Jinx is from Letty; Beats is from Strings. Ill admit I was little nervous Jinx wouldn’t compare to my love for Letty. But in all actuality, I think I love Jinx more. And Beats did nothing to solve my hunger for Rax’s story. I cannot wait to get inside his head in Nocturnes. I want to understand him. I want whatever is broken in him to be fixed, not just for him, but for Jinx and Toombs too. Until he is fixed, Toombs will still feel slightly broken to me. So basically, I’m waiting impatiently to read more about the craziness of Killer Buzz Float’s rise to fame, but I know it will be well worth it.

Stay Raw.
